[Whole No. 540.]
House of Reprefentat'rves.
Friday, March 14.
In committee of the -whole on Mr. Ma,Jtfon's
Mr. Nicholas said he (hould not at
tempt to follow the gentleman lalt\ip thro'
his eloquent address, or undertake to go
into an answer of the variety of general
charges brought forward againil the reso
He wished only to take notice of one
of two points in the debate. It \v a s
laid, that the exigence of the resolutions
would rather be a bar to the termination
of war than an inducement with ouf ene
mies to make a peace. Is it to be ima
gined, he sliced, if Great Britain intends
to drag us into a war, that she will a
bandon it without being compiled ?——•
When forced to the neceflity of wishing
for peace, Will (he not be disposed to
grant us fomc advantages to have her conl
- with us put in as favorable a situa
tion as before hostilities, by a relaxtion,
at lead, of those resolutions. But are
we prepared to to fay, that after being
dragged into a war we are willing to make
peace without obtaining some security that
we (hall not be mole (ted in future > If he
Uriderftodd what a conduct truly dignified
On such an occasion ought to be, we
(hould infill not only on a reparation of
the injury and insult, but (hew to the world
that after obtaining complete fatisfa&iori
we were determined to obtain security a
gainst future aggressions,
The prefect measures did not, as has
been afTerted, originate in favoritifm, they
are not intended to repay a debt of grati
tude, they are drawn forth by the inju
ries infii&ed by one nation and are meant
to benefit the country for which we are
sent to legislate. If, however, in their o
peration they (hould benefit France this
was surely no argument against them, on
the contrary it ought to be an additional
argument in favor of them as we owe that
nation a debt of gratitude,
Mr. Kittera rose to call the attention
of the committee to the immense waste of
time which the discussion of these resolu
tions had ocealioned. Two months had
been in a great measure spent in discussing
them. It was like confultmg on the im
provements to be made to an edifice threat
ened by a conflagration. He hoped the
question would be taken.
Mr. Page. I acknowledge that thedeten
tion of our posts ; the indian war in con
fluence of that detention ; the Algerine
piracies which are supposed to be derived
from the fame source, and the violation of
our rights as a neutral nation, might fnr
nifli Congress with juftifiable reasons for a
declaration of war : but if war with Bri
tain and her allies be considered as a great
er evil than a war with the Indian tribe.;
the depredations of the Algerines, and of
Britiih cruizers, and the insult to the Flag
of the United States, Congress ought not
to declare war; nor to take any steps
which may involve the United S'.ates in
holtilities—nor ought they to ftiew a dis
position to put any other conltru£Hon on
the proceedings of the Britiih government,
than they have publicly avowed ; and as
the United States have so long evidenced
to the world their disinclination to make a
common cause with their allies, who un
doubtedly have less need of our nff-lbnce
now, than they had when Congress firft
met, and the enemies of our alii, s, parti
cularly Britain, (though (he indeed, some
time iince, when slushed with a profpeft
of success, iflued orders of an holtile na
ture againlt us) in all probability will soon
be disposed to peace.
I fay as this is the cafe, 1 cannot be in
duced to believe that the United States arc
in danger of a war with Britain; and to
(hew my disposition to preserve peace with
her, I prefer entering into regulations of
